This years Editor's Top Pick - Free award recipient is once again Plenty of Fish (POF). This dating service continues to be one of the top destinations for singles looking to date. POF is most popular with single adults aged 30 and up, including Millennials, Gen-X, Boomers and seniors (over 4 million active users every day).
For a dating service to be considered for this award they must offer the features for free needed to successfully find and communicate with other members. A member has to be able to use the dating service at no cost and be able to successfully arrange dates. All of the popular free dating services offer a paid subscription option, what makes POF different is the amount of features they allow free members to use. When you compare this along with just how popular the service is, then you understand why they are the winner of this award.
POF offers access via dating apps (found on Google Play, and the App Store) along with their website. It takes 5 minutes to create your profile and perform the account verification by phone text. Once complete you can begin searching right away or continue to add information to your profile. Once you find some members you are interested in, you can go ahead and send them messages. Most members find success on POF with 30% reporting finding a partner in the first month.
To use the main features of Plenty of Fish it costs nothing (this includes sending and receiving of messages). An upgraded membership is offered which includes additional premium features like your profile being highlighted in searches, and being notified if your sent messages are read. This cost ranges from $7 to $13 per month depending on the length of your subscription term.
